Delicious and vegetarian friendly

It's a bit hidden off but not hard to find. I loved having lunch here. The space was quaint and unique. The food was fresh, light and delicious -not heavy or greasy. A perfect way to start your full day of exploring Amsterdam. I have recommended Gartine to others and will continue to do so. I... read more

... then go, otherwise you can find similar places, it's not that mind-blowing. Breakfast in Amsterdam is expensive no matter where you go, and this place is no exception. Where I come from, 10€ for breakfast is considered a lot. Having said that, the staff was really nice and place looks very cute + has this soothing vibe. My egg... More

We called here one morning after reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The place is quite small so be prepared to wait, go early or reserve a table or you will be disappointed. We arrived about 10 minutes after opening at 10am and there were several people already there, 10 minutes later the place... More

You know it's a great restaurant when you can tell that the owners love what they do. Gartine was perfect. Book in advance, but we booked ours the day before and were able to join for breakfast at 10. Tip: if you book far enough ahead, request the table above the kitchen. Amazing birds eye view. Everything about the breakfast... More

This was the best brunch I have had this year. I loved the items on the menu and the relatively limited choice. We all had some eggs and then shared pancakes and French toast. The staff were so friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. My top tip is to book in advance as they get full and were turning... More

I had iced tea with hibiscus and then egg salad and ham on lettuce and nutty bread. It was very good. The place is not air-conditioned, so be aware if it is hot summer weather. Additionally, the place only takes cash.

A wonderful small restaurant with attentive friendly staff, beautiful decor and delicious food. Vegetarian options and an extensive tea menu. The croissant with homemade jams is incredible.

Gartine is a place that is hard to find (between Rokin and Kalverstraat near Spui) at Takseeg 7 and is usually full so booking is advisable. The meals are just delicious and not much more than you would pay in any cafe in Amsterdam. Good coffee and great service make this the ideal lunch place. We went past, made a... More

We've heard good things about this place but didn't expect it would be this good. The breakfast menu is simple but the food was delicious. The scrambled eggs served on the bread was delicious. I am coming back this August just to have it again! Highly recommended and make sure you reserve the table on the balcony in the restaurant

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. Period. We had read that they get quite busy and that seating is fairly limited, so we arrived shortly after they opened and were able to get a table for three upstairs overlooking the restaurant. Everything was fresh, and by "fresh" I mean "grown in the owner's garden." The... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
